KRISTIAN Woolf was largely happy with last night's win over Huddersfield Giants which keeps up Saints' 100 per cent record.

He was, however, disappointed with the manner of those two Giants tries conceded, and admitted that there is still improvement in the team with the ball.

St Helens Star:

Saints won 18-10 with first half tries from Theo Fages and Mark Percival being added to by a Jonny Lomax score in the second half to keep the Giants at bay.

Woolf said: "I was happy with what we did in the first half, we got some good opportunities off what we did defensively.

"We were probably a little too quick to try and find things and made some errors off the back of that, but we turned that around towards the end of the first half.

"We showed some good patience and built some pressure and got a result on the back of that."

St Helens Star:

Saints had kept Giants scoreless in the first period, but conceded early in the second half and were then starved of the ball.

"I thought we dropped a bit second half and certainly looked a bit looser in what we were doing defensively and had a couple of uncharacteristic errors which meant we did not touch the footy for the first nine minutes," Woolf said.

St Helens Star:

"There were a number of times in that first half were Huddersfield really challenged us with their fifth plays.

"The numbers we are getting into frames – to come up with the ball even when we make errors – is a really good sign for us so early in the season.

"I am happy with the way we are defending but was disappointed with the two tries we let in tonight.

St Helens Star:

"We defended for really long periods then let two easy tries in. The only reason was not getting our numbers right on both of those – that is something we need to look at and improve.

"We put ourselves in a position where we had to do too much defending on our own line, particularly at the start of the second half due to our own errors, ill-discipline and some uncharacteristic stuff like kicking out on the full as well.

"We were good enough to turn that back round and get back on top. All in all a good, tough win."

St Helens Star:

However, there were still things to fix up with the ball too - and some of that will come with time.

"We have got a lot of improvement in us but what we are doing well is being willing to work really hard.

"We know that we are going to get better with the ball but I am happy with the way we are going.

"All in all I am really happy with what we are doing," he said.
